Images from Toni Frissell - the 1940s

I was so excited this weekend to find a wonderful book, Toni Frissell, Photographs 1933 - 1967. I've long been a fan of Toni's photographs and am looking forward to reading this and learning more about her life. For now, I'll share a few of my favorite photographs from the book.

Beautiful images, right? Toni did work for Vogue and Harpers Bazaar, that sounds like a dream job to me! Enjoy and I hope you all have a fabulous week.
